The Kennedys

9th May 2015 - 8:00 pm

The Kennedys have released a string of albums to critical acclaim in the US drawing the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle and Nanci Griffith. Pete and Maura Kennedy, both East Coast natives, met in Austin Texas, joined forces with Nanci Griffith’s Blue Moon Orchestra for a couple of years and set out on a road that, for two decades, had led them to not only west but all over the US and UK many times. This year they celebrate their twentieth anniversary booth as a band and as a married couple.

Rather than indulge in a nostalgic look backward, they have taken Dylan’s dictum “don’t look back” to heart writing and recording 40 new songs. ‘West’ is an instant classic Kennedys duo set that seamlessly weaves their influences over the last two decades; – an all new collection of songs- Buddy Holly style roots, the tuneful cadences of the Everly Brothers and the ringing 12-string jangle of the early Byrds. Two decades on, The Kennedys are hitting a songwriting high point.

“Twelve albums on, West is an evocative reflection of the pair’s two decades of travel on the highways and byways of America.”

“Prime practitioners of the finest Americana… this splendid duo’s “West” provides an ideal introduction to their enchanting and evocative sound”

“Their latest album finds The Kennedys making music in peak form… The sound here is classic folk rock with hints of 60’s west coast of USA”

“The title track ‘West’ hooks from the first, and that’s what this album offers: hooks by the shovel-load, instantly enduring hooks, guitars plush and resonant with voices sliding around each other to lay down their stories.”

Doors 8pm, music 8:30pm.
